I had work on Saturday, so I came home a bit late. I have some time to finish some wiki pages, episode summaries. I did finish wiki moderation. First, I have to relink the Summer 2014 Guide, Crunchyroll, and FUNimation Simulcast guides. PM me if you

Ciao and welcome to the 2nd Italian anime spotlight blog! Today, we are covering Campione!, a harem based series that just started airing in June of 2012.

For those who are new to Campione!, here is a synopsis.

Synopsis

It revolves around Godou Kusanagi who is an ordinary high school student who killed a god and claimed its power. He becomes a Campione, one who slays other gods. After becoming a Campione, Godou finds himself attracting a few beautiful women. Erica Blandelli is the first gal who changes and rocks Godou's life.

Characters

Beware of spoilers!

Godou Kusanagi
Godou Kusanagi
Godou is a young, Japanese (Giapponese) man who visits Italy to deliver a Grimoire to his grandfather's friend. Over there, he encounters Erica and her maid who are fighting a god. With his first kiss from Erica, Godou unlocks the Ten Avatars and kicks butt with his Golden Sword.
Erica Blandelli
Erica Blandelli
Erica is a beautiful, buxom Italian woman who is a prideful knight. She becomes smitten by Godou after their fateful encounter.
Arianna
Arianna
Arianna is Erica's weird maid who cannot cook or drive properly.
Athena
Athena
Due to spoilers, Athena is a mysterious silver haired, loli girl.
I had to keep it short, but you guys and gals know that Athena is a god.

Italian Theme

Campione! is first set in Italy. Yet, it goes back to Japan on the second episode. I'm hoping the action and story occurs more in Italy. Plus, we have a few Italian women in the show who are very exotic.

Though, we haven't seen any Italian foods, but we got Italian words. I think it's because little Arianna can't cook while Erica is more of a warrior than a chef. Godou's sister, Shizuka Kusanagi, is the only chef I seen. She needs to learn to cook some Italian cuisine since Erica is going to be Godou's little roommate.

  • Bachio - It's an Italian word for kiss.
  • Ci vediamo means "until we meet again, see you."
  • Cuore di Leone - It's the name of Erica's sword which means Heart of Lion. I'm not sure about the literal translation.
  • Diavola Rossa means "Red Devil."

Compared to La Storia della Arcana Famiglia, the reverse harem anime has more an Italian theme with more words.

I'm afraid that is all I have so far. If I'm wrong in my defintions, please feel free to correct me.

Thank you for reading and commenting on this blog.

Ci vediamo!
